Against The Spread Pick
Marshall is a game below .500 on the season, however, they outrank Florida Atlantic in most other categories. They average 4 more points per game, have a higher field goal percentage, and out rebound Florida. They are one win better in the last 10 games, and are 8-4 when listed as the favorite. The biggest thing that is going for Marshall though is Florida Atlantics terrible 2-11 road record, win which they are 1-7 on the road in conference play. Don’t let Florida’s over .500 record trick you as they can’t win on the road. Take Marshall against the spread.
Over Under Pick
Over the past five games, Marshall and Florida Atlantic have been averaging 74 and 71 points per game respectively. And on the season, the two teams average around those same numbers. Marshall is 70th in points per game in the country, and they allow as many points as they score. Atlantic is slightly better defensively, but they still give up an average of 70 points per game. I think offense will over shadow defense tonight. Take the OVER.
